Since our shipments may include batteries and accumulators, we are obliged under the Batteries Act to draw your attention to the following: batteries and accumulators must not be disposed of in household waste; you are legally obliged to return used batteries and accumulators. Old batteries may contain hazardous substances, which can harm the environment or health if not stored or disposed of correctly. However, batteries also contain valuable raw materials, such as iron, zinc, manganese and nickel and can be recycled. You can either return used batteries to us or hand them in free of charge in your immediate neighbourhood (e.g. to a shop or municipal collection point or our dispatch warehouse). The number of batteries handed in at points of sale by the end user is restricted to quantities commonly used in the average household and to those types of old batteries, which the retailer stocks or has stocked in his range of new batteries.
The symbol of a dustbin with a cross through it means that you must not dispose of batteries and accumulators in the household waste. Below this symbol there are the following additional symbols with the following meanings:
Pb: Battery contains lead
Cd: Battery contains cadmium
Hg: Battery contains mercury
